Dishwasher Safe: Your bkr glass, sleeve, straw, and cap are dishwasher safe on the top rack. Removing the sleeve is optional but easy. See our Instagram bkr care highlight for a founder tutorial.
Cleaning by Hand: if you're cleaning your bkr by hand, we recommend using hot soapy water and our perfect bottle brush. If you'd like to speed up the drying process, roll up a piece of paper towel so it's thin enough to get in the opening of the bottle, but wide enough to stay put. Put the roll 3/4 the way down the bottle (with the top of the roll out the top of the bottle, like a wick) and leave it overnight.
We recommend storing your bkr with the cap off.
Please note, if you have the Swarovski Crystal cap, please wash by hand only and DON’T soak.
bkr bottle: soda lime glass, silicone sleeve, polypropylene cap.
compact cap: food-grade, BPA-free, phthalate-free plastic.
straws & sleeves: 100% silicone which is derived from silicon a naturally occurring element.
Your bkr bottle is made of soda-lime glass - it's durable and protected by a soft silicone sleeve, but it is still glass - so treat it carefully as you would your cell phone or any other thing you love. **Don't freeze it or put it in the back of a fridge that freezes things or leave it in your car in the freezing cold - it will break. We can’t stress this enough. Water expands in all directions regardless of how little of it is in your bkr.** If you accidentally break it in the first 90 days, we will replace the glass for you. Please note freezing negates this warranty.

No, but don't worry, you can find the perfect ice tube trays and bottle brush in our accessories shop. bkr's opening is purposefully designed to be small. It's one of the things that will make you love it.
bkr isn't intended for boiling hot liquid (or for freezing) and we don't recommend putting hot liquid in unless the glass itself is already warm. The glass is not tempered so you'll want to avoid rapid temperature changes which could cause your bkr to crack.
The original Little 500 mL bkr fits most cupholders. The Big 1L bkr will not fit most cupholders, but does fit on some treadmills, ellipticals and on stationary bikes like the ones at Soulcycle or on Peloton bikes. The Teeny 250 mL fits all cupholders.
We’ve traveled the world with our bkr bottles. Just be sure to take them through security empty and fill up on the other side.
Keep in mind that some venues, stadiums, amusement parks and courtrooms don’t allow glass inside. Make sure to check with the venue beforehand if you’re worried. And if your bkr is ever confiscated, remember to take off your cap, balm and sleeve and keep them – you replace the glass later.
